Ryanair has launched its 90th summer route out of Dublin Airport – to Dalaman in Turkey. The airport serves resorts such as Marmaris, Fethiye and Oludeniz in the Turkish Riviera, which will also be served by TUI from next summer.
Dublin Airport Managing Director Vincent Harrison said “Ryanair operates to 90 destinations from Dublin Airport and we are delighted to see its route network go from strength to strength with the addition of Dalaman.”
The new service joins five other new Ryanair routes- to Marrakesh, Munich, Naples, Stuttgart and Paphos – this year. The Dalaman flight departs Dublin every Monday at 6.10am, and departs Turkey at 1.30pm.
“We’re pleased to officially launch our new weekly summer service from Dublin to Dalaman, our newest airport. To celebrate the start of this new route, we are releasing seats for sale from Dublin from just €19.99 for travel until the end of October,” said Ryanair’s Robin Kiely. “Turkey is a hugely popular destination for Irish people so we have no doubt this new route will be a great success.”
Dublin Airport has welcomed an additional 639,000 passengers between January and May and this summer it has flights to 195 destinations in 42 countries, operated by 56 airlines.
